Dan Grading Applications Deadline / Class Closures / UTW News


The deadline for students and Instructors to give in Shodan and Nidan test applications for Sunday 8th September is today.

We have received over 30 applications so far and we’d like to thank everyone who has been brave enough to put themselves forward.

We wish you the best of luck and hope that you continue to work hard over the next couple of weeks to give yourself the best possible chance of a successful outcome. It should be a great event.

If you still need to hand in your application, it needs posting through our door at 39 Moorside Road, Tottington, Bury. BL8 3HP and I will add you to the grading.

JKS England will NOT accept any late candidates.

There are plenty of places still available on the course and you can book a place via email or through your Class Instructor.
